Brexit mayhem – what now? Boris Johnson delays Brexit until next year
‘The UK will leave the EU on October 31, 2019, “do or die, deal or no deal”’
The line repeated by U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson repeatedly.
Yet Boris’s plans are officially dead as of today when he accepted formally, to postpone Brexit until January 31, 2020.
The question is now, where do we go from here?
DUP: The UK Conservative government does not have a majority without the loyalty of the Northern Irish. However the DUP have refused to back the government’s Brexit deal.
Labour: Continue to sit in the fence and do nothing much apart from loose supporters. Labour do not support a general election at this time.
Lib Dem’s: Have promised to revoke Brexit completely if they win a majority at a general election.
SNP: Are pro remain and may back an election if they can, along with Lib Dems end the TORY deal and Brexit itself.
So it’s should be simple, a general election and Lib Dem/SNP victory? No.
Without Labour parliament doesn’t have the 2/3rds majority needed to call an early election.
The only option is to pas a new emergency law allowing an election with Lib Dem and SNP backing at only 50%.
But, early polls suggest that the self destructive Brits hell bent on self ruin would actually vote for Boris! And Brexit, AGAIN! Even with the job losses and crippled economy and rapidly failing businesses, rising hate crimes and loss of global influences.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
